Thanks for info themistake.

I know wayfarers arent cool any more but they suit my face and I dont really like any modern styles. Cutler and Gross appeal to me but too expensive.

May go for these ones

But have seen look-a-likes of these in Topman, Urban Outfitters as well anyway Laughing out loud

Yes they're legit - I didn't notice the out of stock bit. It might be that they will try to source them and then tell you later they can't get them.

Just updated the top of the thread with a list of good (and legit) sunglasses shops I'm aware of.

Crackajack - if you like that 4125 you should have a look at vintage Carrera sunglasses, so much cooler (and what that Ray-Ban is "inspired by").

Thanks again for posting all those retailers up Andy, can save loads of money by buying outside of uk by the look of it.

Yeah seen the Carrera styles similar to the 4125 but put off by the logo on the bridge of the nose most of them have, these are good though.


Almost identical to the RayBans but unfortunately 2x the price. Agreed they are nicer though and Im sure better quality.

going to be clubmasters for me this year, got a really tiny head so not many glasses fit me and look good. don't care if they are copied to death, i'll just get a funky colour to stand out.

Like these:


But tried on the RayBan equivalent and they are a 2mm smaller lens and looked too big, the Carrera only seem to come in one size as well Sad

Maui jim kapalua, titanium frame with maui rose polarized lenses, the best sunglasses ever made imo, ive had mine for about 5 years. Great for golf, driving, day to day wear etc etc.
